About Me

Welcome to Ashby Childminding Service. Hi my name is Monica, I'm married to James, we have two boys and a much loved rescue cat called Paddy. I enjoy being a childminder and offer quality childcare from 6am until 5.30pm on a term time basis. Standard daycare offered from 7.30am until 5.30pm daily. My eldest is 17 years old now and I aim to emulate the amazing childminder who cared for my son all those years ago.

Flexible or contract before and after school care also available for Ashby C of E Primary School.

My Experience

Contact immediately if you require before and after school care for Ashby C of E Primary School.

offer home from home care in the heart of Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

I provide a large range of learning opportunities for the children, I attend local groups, parks and events to promote active learning. I offer a nurturing home environment for children to happily learn and explore. Every child is unique and as a childminder I offer bespoke care. The children learn through play both indoors and outdoors in our beautiful Leicestershire countryside. I have a lovely garden and allotment area where the children learn how to grow food, about nature and insects, about the environment and how to protect it by composting, saving water, not using plastic etc. I have a passion about the outdoors and fitness and how it complements the development of happy children and supports their learning. Of course there is lots of time to play in the sand and with water.

My ethos is that children learn the most when they are happy and secure. I provide many learning opportunities and follow a curriculum of learning and experiences that is age and child specific.

I care for children from birth upwards and offer limited before and after school care for Ashby Primary School.

Before school care 6am until 9am and after school care from 3pm until 5.30pm

Standard daycare offered from 7.30am until 5.30pm daily.

Qualified, experienced, insured and a dedicated Registered Childminder.

Set in a spacious, well equipped, modern home with a secure outdoor playing area.

Our son goes to Monica’s for pre-nursery wraparound care. He is always so excited to go, he even asks to go at weekends! Monica is always cheerful, even early in the morning when he’s dropped off and has always been very flexible.

My children are always happy to go to Monica's house - even at 6 am! I couldn't wish for a more flexible, more understanding, more child oriented childminder or a safer, more relaxed environment.
